9 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

Medium processor core personal computers manufactured by DELL have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good ratings across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on latest PCs.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most newly released personal computers have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of PC.

Other SSD PCs currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper personal computers such as the Lenovo E73[plb_3436638_price], or the HP 400 G2[plb_3768564_price].

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Eight Processor Threads

The DELL 7040 is a eight processor thread PC. Most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 7040 only have between four and seven processor threads.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The shallowest recently released medium processor core desktop computer is 33mm deep and the deepest is 600mm. At only 176 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year.

Chart Edit

Light

The average weight of recently released medium processor core personal computers is 6.4kg, and the weights range from 38g to 16kg. With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the DELL 7040 is very light compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 7040.

Chart Edit

Narrow

With a width of only 36 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is very narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year. Recently released medium processor core personal computers have widths of between 34mm and 7,100mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year range from 32GB to 3.3TB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst computers of this age.

If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 7040[plb_3817108_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only One DisplayPort

Most latest PCs have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the DELL 7040 which has one DisplayPort.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The DELL 7040 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest maximum internal memory of new medium processor core personal computers is 2GB, the biggest is 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 42GB.

Chart Edit

Only One Storage Drive

The DELL 7040 is a one storage drive personal computer.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040

Released Ten Months Ago

It was ten months ago when this DELL computer was released.

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other latest personal computers.

We compared this personal computer to all the other 8GB memory computers and we think the Alienware Alpha[plb_2706467_price], the DELL T3420[plb_3242155_price], and the HP 400 G2[plb_3768564_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.8 gigahertz, the DELL 7040 has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other recently released similar spec PCs.

If you want a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 400 G3[pl_3787564_price] (3.2GHz and cheaper), or the 400 G3 SFF[pl_3820588_price] (3.2GHz and cheaper) both from HP.
